KWV has been a traditional mainstay of the South African wine scene for decades. The 20th century Port-style wines are some of the country’s most special vintage SA wines and will continue to drink well for many decades. The 1948 received many accolades in its early life, but was awarded the Trophy for Best Museum Class Cape Port at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show Awards 2016. The Magnums are even fresher than 750ml and are now truly rare.
